Yan underwent cataract surgery.
Yan had been troubled by his diminishing eyesight and assumed his vision would be diminished for the rest of his life. He traveled to our medical partner CSC, had successful surgery, and was able to return home the following day. The surgery will improve Yan’s life because he will see well enough to help around the house and recognize the faces of his many grandchildren.
Yan said: “I am glad my neighbor told me about the hospital. The staff made me comfortable and I was grateful to be in good hands. I can see and am pleased my life will be better and I can see again. Thank you!”

Two years ago, Yan developed a cataract in his right eye, which causes blurry vision, sensitivity to light, and tearing. When Yan learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours to seek treatment. On May 16th, doctors at Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre will perform cataract surgery, and they will also implant an intraocular lens in his right eye. Children’s Surgical Centre is requesting $253 to fund Yan’s treatment, which will enable Yan to see clearly, once again.
Yan told us: “After surgery I hope I can see people clearly, visit the pagoda by myself, and take better care of my wife.”
